The Basilica Features a 33-foot by 45-foot Italian style mosaic designed by Martinez and Murphy of Los Angeles, CA. The simple yet striking art entitled "Christ Presents His Mother" was reproduced in Italian Murano glass by master mosaicists Poli and Pardini from Pietrasanta, Italy. The Mosaic, consisting of hundreds of thousands of multicolored pieces of glass, was produced at the mosaic studios in a small artisan community just north of Lucca, Italy. Upon completion it was shipped in peices, much like a puzzle, and affixed with cement to a prepared wall. This art form, used throughout Europe, is known for its duability to the elements and the richness of the many of hundred of available colors. Dedication for this impressive art was February 2, 1995. 18"x24" Jigsaw Puzzle, 550 Pieces,
